I was on Fox and Friends this morning to talk about the Tea Party movement’s next steps. As I noted, grass-roots activists are mobilizing on both the local and national levels to lobby for fiscal responsibility from both parties. A nationwide round of protests against cap-and-tax and socialized medicine is scheduled for July 17. But some folks aren’t waiting. Today, MoveOn.org organized its own series of rallies for Obamacare — but they were met and matched by counterprotesters who mobilized at the last minute to make their voices heard.

Monica in North Carolina e-mailed me this afternoon: “Just fyi, we heard that moveon.org was promoting a “Public health option” rally today at 12 in front of Kay Hagan’s office- D, NC. We spread the word and outnumbered them more than FOUR to ONE! We had a great time and even used some logic as we sparred with the liberals, which of course, they don’t understand. Fun day nonetheless. I’ve attached a few pics.”

You won’t see these on the front page of the New York Times. But it’s happening more often than you think — and it’s all the more remarkable and newsworthy given that most Tea Party folks, unlike the Soros-funded astroturf protest mobsters, have full-time jobs and families:
